Replaced by skeleton creatures that defy the laws of physics... because the laws of physics have changed.We were so intent on destroying our world we never saw the real threat coming. Now humans and Tricks remain behind to pick up the pieces and try to wrest civilization back from the ones and zeroes that locked it away.But some struggles are universal -- even for damaged humans and their mutant cousins. Some struggles tell us to break our own rules... let alone, tell the Angels and their Pigs to go screw themselves. Who knows, maybe theyd make beautiful babies together.Following seven days in the lives of Ada and Lil, By Any Means is a serialized graphic novel by Jennifer DiMarco, editor of the erotic weekly serial Mariel Cove and best-selling novelist, playwright and poet.* * *Ada Monroe was ten years old when the Rise struck and the machines locked humanity out of their own systems. In a number of hours, she was a war orphan, one of the few spared by the digital viruses and left to witness the slow extinction and mutation of the human race. Without a mind for higher mathematics and genetics, Ada was useless to the soldiers of the Reclamation so she was stuck in the poverty-stricken Sector Y, until she met...Lillian Riley is twenty years Adas junior so she never knew a world of over-population, networked computers in every home, and global satellite communication. Lil is a rarity -- a human born after the Rise -- but shes also proof that evolution finds a way. Lil dreams in binary, could write code before she could speak, and has been an elite member of the Reclamation Corps her entire life. When she falls in love with hard-scrabble Ada, she starts to dream bigger than ever before. The story of Ada and Lil is told by...Jennifer DiMarco had published a dozen novels, plays and award-winning poetry collections before she was nineteen, touring nationally twice with her Seattle Times Bestseller, Escape to the Wind. The designer of core game mechanics and the author of the Mardi Gras 3000 graphic novel Under the Influence, and the editor of the Eden erotic comic series, DiMarco also works in film as the writer and director behind Jericho House, Drawn, and the childrens show, Epic Heroes.
